Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi, I have a feeling this has been asked before and i checked the index but anything i click it sends me to the LO forum home page. but anyways, can guardian defender HW platforms be carried in wave serpents? I cant find anything in the codex that says they can or cant..maybe I'm looking in the wrong places, if anyone can give me a page number or something it would be appreciated.thanks
Short answer - yes.
Long answer - check page 39, second paragraph of the WARGEAR section. It states that the weapon platform "is always ignored ... when counting the number of models in the unit."
Meaning that a unit of 10 Guardian Defenders with a weapon platform counts as a 10-model unit for purposes of riding in a transport.
You always can do something unless the rules prohibit it. So you can transport it.
The weapons platform isn't actually anything any more - it's pretty much just to denote which weapon you've taken, LoS and range is taken from the gunner.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
And under Wave serpent, it doesn't say, like it used to, how you can't put a platform in it.
Not many posts have gone up about - I mentioned it before the server change, and Heirmoyo mentions it in his excellent tactica. But I think it has some merit. Massed shurikats in serpents has always been a favorite of mine, and the ability to add two more guardians and a heavy weapon to a up-gunned serpent sounds good. Especially if it will be awhile before you can afford the boxes of Dires, Spears, and Prisms the new list ideas would need.
ok, thanks guys..appreciate it
